FAQS

What is pre-trip coaching?

Pre-trip coaching helps you prepare physically and mentally for your active or adventure trip. As a certified personal trainer with decades of experience in outdoor adventures and traveling, I’ll help you

  • define your vision for what you want to achieve and experience 
  • identify how you can get there using your strengths 
  • collaborate with you to develop realistic and achievable plans to get ready for your adventure
  • support your progress and celebrate your success
    Why should I work with a coach to prepare for a trip?

    As a coach, I will work with you to figure out how best to simulate activities you’ll do on your trip before you leave, so you can be ready to really enjoy them when you get to your destination. 

    We’ll work together so you find the time and energy to add more activity into the weeks before your trip. I’ll help keep you on track through accountability and encouragement. 

    You’ll get more comfortable with the activities you’re planning to do, and gain confidence so you can make the most of your trip.

    Is pre-trip coaching the same as personal training?

    Pre-trip coaching is different than personal training in a few ways:

    • Pre-trip coaching is a collaborative approach that helps you achieve your goals through activities you’re excited to do. I co-develop a plan with you that aligns with your preferences and interests.
    • Pre-trip coaching can be done via phone or video chat, or in person, since the purpose is to create goals and plans that you will act on independently. There’s no whistle or stopwatch involved in pre-trip coaching.
    • Since I’m also a certified personal trainer (ACSM), you’ll get appropriate guidance on training plans and exercises that will get you ready for the activities you want to do on your trip.
    Why do you offer a free 30-minute trip consultation session?
    I offer the initial consultation for free so you can get an idea of how I can help you before you commit to a package. You probably do a lot of research before you decide if a trip location is where you want to go – this is a way for you to research me!
    What will I get out of working with you?

    When you work with me, you’ll get personalized attention, guidance and accountability to help you take the steps that are best for you to reach your goals. My clients tell me it’s especially helpful to meet with me weekly to review their progress, learn what’s working (or not), and adjust what they’re doing to stay on track. Here’s how one client puts it:

    Weekly sessions have helped me identify self-care goals that are important to me, and experimenting with different strategies to meet them has been revealing and fun.  With Becki’s help, I’m discovering that the “right” way to take good care of myself is finding and using the practices that are sustainable and “right” for me! – Christy F.

    There’s lots of free information online about how to prepare for a trip – why should I pay for a coach?

    Yep, there’s a ton of information out there – it can be conflicting and confusing, and it may not be backed by proof. You can spend hours trying to sort it all out, and then figuring out how you’re going to actually do it is a whole other exercise (literally and figuratively).

    As a coach, I help you identify the activities and opportunities that will work best for you – which means you’re far more likely to enjoy it AND stick with it!

    As a personal trainer and health coach, I’ve learned about how effective various physical activities actually are, and how to motivate my clients to actually do them.
